The Forgotten Intitiative

Listen in as Jen Young, Forgotten Advocate, shares the impact one ‘journey bag’ had
on a precious foster care child,

“A caseworker called to say thank you for the journey bags we delivered.
She described one story of a child that came into care with a sibling from a
horrible situation that involved a death of a parent. Caseworkers tried to keep
the two brothers together, but could not, which was very difficult for the boys.
The caseworker said that when she gave them a journey bag, their
eyes lit up. 
She expressed how excited they were to have their own
bag and the joy it brought the kids really touched the caseworker as well. 

I couldn’t help but tell this caseworker about the 500 bags we received from a
church that put each of these bags together.  I told her that while we’re glad
the bags are appreciated, needed and useful, God cares about this
child and took care of the details.
 His hand was upon this situation
and He knew just what this child needed!”
